Required for him to join Leafs. Will give team depth for upcoming road trip. RT @TSNBobMcKenzie: TOR puts Matt Lashoff on re-entry waivers.

I want Montreal to pick this kid up! He is exactly what we need and lack in Montreal and would be great with Subban and Tinordi in the future.

Talent Analysis

Lashoff has the blend of skating, size and technical skill to be an outstanding two-way, puck-moving defenseman. He has been a power play threat at the lower levels of hockey and is a confident and smooth skating playmaker. He’s at his best when he has the puck, sees the ice well and is solid on both the power play and penalty kill. Lashoff plays an aggresive style that sometimes crosses the line into undisciplined. His decision-making and awareness without the puck are sometimes suspect, particularly in the defensive game. He has the skill level and desire to be a top four NHL defender that contributes to the offensive attack but has not yet put it all together.

Don't mean to burst your bubble but he isn't close to a top 4 defender. He's a lot like Subban/Wiz where he can contribute on offense but opens holes in his D. Does not have a strong two-way game.

too bad this kid didn't pan out, I remember how I thought he was a great return for Mark Recchi a few seasons back...man was I wrong... Recchi is still truckin' and not losing any speed.. Lashoff gets dealt to Toronto and is being waived again.

He's looked great with the Marlies and I'd love to see him stick with the big club.

With Sopel's recent injury, I'd take a chance on him if I was Montreal. The guy has the tools, has been good for the Marlies, and it's a better option than putting your own guys on re-entry.

God I hope this means Komisarek will be a healthy scratch for the rest of the season.

Not if you've seen him play. Think a bit bigger and better skating Brett Lebda. Will make an excellent end to end rush and wow the crowd, then turn the puck over and get beat back to his net.

I hate Komisarek and think he is among the worst d men in the league, but at least he stands in his own end and knocks the puck away the odd time.

Define "better skating". Lebda is one of the best skaters in the league, probably top 5 in terms of sheer speed for defensemen.

Maybe the size makes him look smoother, but no doubt Lashoff can skate. Maybe he isn't better, just looks really smooth.

I don't mean only speed, Lashoff just moves well on his skates.

IMO Lashoff fell in that black hole that so many young forwards do, the in between hole. Not really a top 6 talent, but not really the tools to be an effective bottom 6.

Lashoff isn't good enough offensively to offset his defensive deficiencies. He's a good player, I just think he's a step below most offensive NHL defenseman.

...when the Panthers put Tim Kennedy on re-entry waivers a couple days ago, if a team claimed him, he wouldn't be able to play for them for the rest of the regular season or the playoffs.

I'm wondering if it's the same circumstance for Matt Lashoff?

You are correct. If some team picks him up, they would not be able to use him for the rest of the year or playoffs. That is why the Leafs waited a few weeks after the trade deadline to place him back on re-entry waivers. I also belive he is unsigned for next year, so anybody has a crack at him at the end of the season. It does not make sense for anybody to claim him.

I'll take Lashoff over Komisarek or Ledba any day of the week. They have both shown that they can't be a reliable 6 d-man in the NHL. Might as well give Lashoff a shot who has much more offensive potential. Komi and Lebda are terrible defensively, makes sense to bring in someone who is also terrible defensively but can at least pot a couple goals.

Every time I realize we have Komisarek for the next 3 years at a 4.5 cap hit I throw up in my mouth a little bit.

Yep, McKenzie confirmed it.

@TSNBobMcKenzie: TOR's Matt Lashoff clears re-entry waivers; CGY puts Ales Kotalik on re-entry waivers.

Im pretty sure this is wrong.

He can play for them for the remainder of the season, just not the playoffs AFAIK.

Bingo. The only team he can play for this season (reg and playoffs) is the Leafs.

Who who nab a player, to pay him salary just to see him walk on July 1?

Montreal has 8 defensemen on the roster, makes no sense to pick up another.

If Im the oilers I really consider claiming him. Would be much more important to give Lashoff ice time than Jason Strudwick! Also this way if they want the can play strudwick at forward and then not call anyone up.

He's already cleared which is not surprising.
